I think I have a mouse in my kitchen.
Ready to wash my dishes, I reached into the cupboard under the sink for the detergent and saw a couple of dozen tiny black droppings.
They weren't there yesterday.
Now it's been several years since I saw a mouse and that one was outside in the garden.
I've never seen mouse droppings. I have no idea what they look like. These were like microchip sized cigars. About half a centimetre long.
Maybe they're cockroach droppings?
My first reaction was to empty the cabinet and sweep it clean, then I broke apart a package of cockroach baits and spread them around.
Finally, I washed the dishes.
Tomorrow I'm coming home from work with the biggest package of Ratsack I can find.
Mickey Mouse Heaven can welcome a new tenant.
A bit of worry, mixed with a drop of water.
